JSP Visual Week In Review | 04.19.14

Annnndddd….life as we now it – at least around my little section of the Great State of New Jersey – is about to get back to my normal.

By dinner time today, my wife and little girl will be home for their week-long trip to Florida. And my week with the Krajnak Boys will be over.

It’s been a good week with the boys. We settled in nicely after a rough first couple of days (if I had a nickel for every time I hear When’s Mommy coming home?….) Overall it was a great week, though a weird weather one: It was 85 here last Sunday, snowed overnight on Wednesday night, and will be almost 70 today.

I give all the credit to the stay-at-home parents out there. While I knew this before, it was reinforced that your job is challenging, tiring, but yet fulfilling. Especially with young kids like my guys are – it’s a constant state of on-the-go-keep-them-intrigued-and-entertained.

My buddy complained about his job in NYC this week, and I countered with how it was a tiring day on my end because the boys didn’t nap. He said “You sound like my wife.” Maybe I did, and I can definitely relate to the stresses of both jobs.

One thing this week did afford me was the opportunity to shoot every day, and to test out a new off-camera lighting system (hopefully more on that soon.)

This week was a break from the norm for me. Time to get back to the relative routine.
